Results for Learning Designs and Teaching Strategies
Building of an earlier Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub Project Fund project, (Luafutu-Simpson, P. et al., 2015), this collaborative project is focused on the implementation and monitoring of a Pasifika Success Toolkit in the Canterbury tertiary education organisations (Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury) . The longer view is to share the successful work and generalizable findings across, ideally, sub-sectors.
This project evaluates a pilot intervention programme that aims to develop student numeracy and address the concern that many students enter university with low mathematics competency and experience difficulties with quantitative papers
This project will explore high achieving university students’ conceptions of ‘good teaching’ and ‘effective learning’ in lecture and tutorial settings, using focus group discussions, critical incident technique and photovoice.
In this project, we investigate supporting mechanisms for active video watching, in order to improve students’ presentation skills. The project involves a collaborative team of academics from the University of Canterbury, the University of Leeds (UK) and the University of Adelaide.
This project will track the success of engineering students who attended a flipped classroom in their first year of study and compare their progress to individuals who undertook an equivalent class in a traditional setting.
This project seeks to identify the pedagogical success factors that make a difference for Pacific learners, and to then support and mentor colleagues to test the identified pedagogical approaches into their own programmes.
Those involved in the teaching and learning of law students will be interested in this ongoing longitudinal study of law students. It is intended that, over the course of the study, a complete law student profile will be developed which will detail the expectations, views and experiences of students during each year of their studies and in their first years in the workforce.
This collaborative project between Victoria University of Wellington and WelTec aims to assist tutors at New Zealand polytechnics to meet the literacy needs of all students, and in particular, Pasifika students.
A collaborative project that will result in the delivery of a professional development programme to provide enhanced support for educators working with Māori and Pasifika learners in adult literacy and numeracy.
This project developed and evaluated a suite of scenarios that can be used as real-time role-plays that enhance communication skills. Through these role-plays, learners can gain experience in realistic and challenging situations where they need to rapidly respond in an uncertain environment, and effectively communicate with a range of stakeholders.
